My very first post

This is my very first blog post and it feels a bit strange to be writing to I don't know who! I'm the mummy of 'mummyandme'. We thought it would be fun to blog about our sewing and things of interest to us, to keep a memory, to share with others and celebrate our achievements. I've always been a sewing come crafty person but only fairly recently became hooked on patchwork and stitching. I love to make the gifts I give to people and as there is always someone's birthday coming up (or Christmas which seems to come around too quickly) there is always some sewing on the go. Scrapbooking features in the pleasurable things to do although after scrapping my daughter's life from birth to 21 (which took about six months) I am sort of over it, well for a while anyway. I have been seriously thinking about scrapping the photos of my sewing so perhaps the scrapbooking things will come out again soon. I like gardening too and especially like having plants in my garden that flower so that I can pick them for my office at work each week. I work for a psychiatrist and a psychologist and I find that a smiling face and pleasant peaceful surroundings with pretty flowers can go a long way towards lifting up people that are feeling a bit down.

My latest cutesy sewing project is a mousy pincushion that I made for Cornelia for her birthday:I made the pins too just for fun and they have little ends to them as well so they can be worn as a stick-pin:

My flower of the moment is the day lily which flowers and flowers nearly the whole year long:

What I am working on at present is a cushion just to use up some scraps of pretty material that I had left over from another project and I will post a photo of it a bit later as I am taking part in the Friday night sew-in.

My quote for today is:

The happiest people seem to be those who are producing something;

The bored people are those who are consuming much and producing nothing.

My verse for today is:

Psalm 138.8

The Lord will fulfil his purpose for me; your love O Lord endures forever.
